ExperienceI have experience of supervising counsellors in private practice and school based counsellors which has provided me with extensive knowledge about child protection issues. I also have experience of working within organisations which has given me a depth of understanding of how organisational complexities and cultures can impact on counselling.My experience includes working with individuals but also extends to working with groups. I aim to provide a collaborative approach to supervision by supporting the supervisee to gain increased awareness of themselves, their work and how they impact on their clients.Theoretical OrientationChoosing a supervisor who understands the supervisees theoretical orientation is extremely important. I work from an integrative approach which has been supplemented over the years with additional therapies. I therefore have a broad understanding of many approaches which include Person-Centred, Existential, Psychodynamic, CBT, Mindfulness CBT, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and creative ways of working with adults and children.Qualifications

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
